How to know if your Child has Dyslexia

HowEvery parent’s main concern is their child’s health and wellbeing. Anytime your child is not feeling well, you immediately seek treatment or visit a doctor, if you cannot relieve their pain yourself. The same thing goes for your child’s educational needs. Knowing that your child is struggling in school and not understanding why can be incredibly frustrating and scary.

Fortunately, you are not in it alone. Approximately 10% of children have dyslexia and although it makes learning more challenging, there is no reason for it to prevent a child from obtaining a quality education. There are special educational tricks, support groups, and professionals who specialize in children with dyslexia that can help you and your child handle it with confidence. The important thing is to recognize the signs early, so adjustments can be made to make learning easier during the critical developmental stages.

Could my child have dyslexia?

Here are some common signs that your child may have dyslexia:

• Struggles when first learning to talk

• Difficulty with pronunciation of simple words

• Difficulty rhyming words

• Struggles to learn basics such as the alphabet, colors, and numbers

• Does not enjoy reading, writing, or spelling

• Problems with handwriting

• Struggles with fine motor skills

• Mixing up letters like “b” and “d” or the order of letters within words

• Trouble understanding the connection between letters and their sounds

If your child has a few of these signs, it does not necessarily mean they are dyslexia. You will need to discuss it with your family doctor, as well as your child’s teacher to know for sure. Although, any of these signs could potentially point to dyslexia, they could also be a sign that your child has an issue with their eye-sight, an attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, or behavior problems. That is why you will need to talk to professional before making a diagnosis.

If your child has been diagnosed with dyslexia, there are things you can do to make it easier for them. Anything from increasing the font sign on worksheets, using colored paper instead of white, and using simple sentences will make it easier for your child to adjust. There is no reason a child cannot learn with dyslexia, it just may require more effort on the part of the child, parent, and teacher.

If your child’s teacher is not aware of methods to help your child learn with dyslexia, you can help the teach learn the techniques or schedule additional tutoring with some who does understand how to help your child. By investing in teaching your child how to manage their dyslexia when they are young, they will have a much greater chance of success.

Your child has the potential for incredible achievements, but steps need to be taken now to ensure the dyslexia does not hinder their abilities.
